Open Your Eyes!
The dream of writing was one I never knew I had. On a July ride back from Georgia in 2010, my wife and I were listening to sports talk. There was a perspective on a particular sports talk show that I disagreed with. I mumbled, grumbled and was going off on the subject as we rode back to Tennessee. I actually thought I could come up with something better on the discussed topic. Well, my wife put me to the test when she said I should write about it.
From there, my writing started with The Everyday Man’s Sports Blog. I was raw with my perspective. Of course I had no idea what I was really doing. The only writing training I had was English class in high school and college. I took that and made it into what I thought was something that voiced my opinion. And from there, my voice was created.
Over the years, I have written at many different places. From short pieces to lengthy ones, my style has varied. And over that time, a voice developed. It was not one that was similar to another, but my unique voice.
